AMD today announces Radeon Pro RX 5600M with Navi 12 GPU. This is the first Navi processor to feature HBM2 memory

AMD Radeon 5600M gets Navi 12 with HBM2 memory

AMD Navi 12 GPU featured 40 Compute Units with a total of 2560 Stream Processors. AMD Radeon Pro 5600M is the first graphics card to feature this graphics processor. The card will have a maximum theoretical FP32 performance of 5.3 TFLOPs. This means that the clock speed is estimated at around 1035 MHz.

The Radeon Pro 5600M has 8GB of HBM2 memory across 2048-bit. This is a dual HBM2 die configuration. The memory bandwidth of 394 GB/s translates into an effective clock speed of 1540 MHz.

The card has the same Total Graphics Power (TGP) as Radeon Pro 5500M and Radeon Pro 5300M, which is 50W. This is likely why the graphics card is clocked at relatively low frequency.

The new Radeon Pro 5600M is a mobile graphics card for the new MacBook Pro. It is now offered alongside Radeon RX 5300M and Radeon RX 5500M.
